I'm about to reporpose my Unitrends applance to be a backup repositary for VEEAM!!! It will be reformated and loaded with FreeNAS.
I have 2 ESXi hosts, VEEAM is on it's own VM. I'm trying to figure out the best way to approach the repository. 3 choices:
1) Access it as a NFS share with UNC.
2) Create a NFS datastore in vSphere and add it to the VM as a letter drive
3) create a iSCSI datastore in vSphere and add it to the VM as a letter drive
I'm not moving a lot of data. I'm currently writing to another FreeNAS NFS share and the performance is OK.
Which of those solutions would be the best to implement?
And then, how do I move the existing backups to the new FreeNAS server?
